About the Poem

This poem is talking about how I was finally figuring out that I didn't have to take what this guy was doing to me. I was so sick of the way things were going, but I finally stood up for myself and so I wrote a poem.

What You Really Are

You hurt me once, you'll hurt me again.
But what am I supposed to do until then?
Why do you keep coming in my life,
right after I get over you?
There's just that one thing about you
I just don't understand.
Why do you do this to me?
Why do I let you hurt me over and over?
Why can I not resist you?

I keep thinking maybe this time it will be different,
but you never come through like I want you to.
I want to get totally over,
but I can't when you keep doing this to me.
I hope this stops,
cause I don't think I can take it any longer.
What draws you to me?
Why can't I not see what you really are?
